No. It does light up, but not the same as the Paperwhite.

The Fire is like and tablet/smartphone and horrible to read in bright daylight since it is back lit.

The Paperwhite is an eInk Kindle with a FRONT lit screen allowing you to read in bright daylight and also easier on your eyes.

The Fire is a backlit LCD device, like your computer monitor. It is a tablet device, and because of the backlighting, it isn't good for reading in the sun.

The Paperwhite has an e-ink screen, with a front lighting system. It can be used in all lighting situations, even bright sunlight.
